How do...?

How do I get my glasses to look cleaner?

I don't have a dishwasher. I get really annoyed when the drinking glasses don't look clean after I wash them by hand with a sponge, dish soap and hot water.

I usually let them air dry on the rack. I have also tried drying them by hand, but no luck.

We just bought new glasses a few weeks ago and now they already look pretty gross.

I know I'm probably just being silly, but is there any way to get them to look cleaner?

The unclean parts, what are they? Do you drink milk in them?

No milk.  Its normally just water lines/marks. The wine glasses are older and look the dirtiest for some reason.

You can try putting them overnight in a "balja" with water and salt that's been mixed. That removes tea and coffee stains but I guess it will remove other stains too.

Hmm, ok i'll try that. I think I'm also going to try diluted vinegar and see what happens.

That was my next suggestion if the salt didn't work. You can try rubbing a glass with a cloth soaked in vinegar or vinegar extract. Rinse afterwards.
